Plan now to attend the M.A.D. Youth Beach Retreat
Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware
FIRST EVENT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
(don’t forget the incoming freshmen) …
Who? – Senior high youth, classes 2018 (this year’s grads) thru 2022 (incoming freshmen) and their
advisors – ratio recommended per church is 1 “mature” advisor/chaperone, age 22 or older, per 6 youth.
Cost – $50 if you register by August 15; $55 by Aug 25; $60 by Sept 1. You arrange your own
transportation (preferably as a church group). Our money will not be refunded in the event that a hurricane
closes down the park (their rules). Our plan, barring a hurricane, is to go ahead with the retreat, rain or
Accommodations – barracks style housing, with 15 beds per room. Each person should bring their own
linens or sleeping bag, as well as beach “things” (modesty, please). The facility is within walking distance of
the beach on the ocean side, and the pier on the Bay side. There are many hiking and biking trails within the
park. A kitchen is provided, but no cook, so we will prepare the menu and be our own cooks.
Arrival – Friday evening after 8 pm or Saturday morning by 9 am – the price would remain the same. Please
tell us in advance if you are not planning on arriving until Saturday morning. Check-out time from the
housing area is 11 am on Sunday, but you are free to stay in the park. Parking in the youth camp area is
limited and we are allowed 1 parking pass per 4 people. Advisors, please indicate on the top of your
registration form how many vehicle passes you will need for your group… carpool as much as possible to
ensure we have enough passes.
Program – Leadership is still being discussed for this weekend. We’ll have a worship service, as well as
vespers/devotion times each day. There will be plenty of free time to enjoy the ocean, beach, trails, and
other recreation possibilities within the park – without leaving it for the duration of the retreat. More
details will be on MAD Youth facebook page as they become available. Feel free to ask us questions or make
